Will.i.am has together with DipDive just released a new video titled "Take Our Planet Back" which focuses on energy, climate and environmental issues and topics. The video calls for citizens and their leaders to deal with the serious environmental problems that our planet faces. The video features clips of Al Gore, montages of the various environmental challenges we face, and will.i.am singing.

Watch it:

Below you can find the lyrics for Will.I.Am's new music video "Take Our Planet Back":

Al Gore: Today, I challenge our nation to commit to producing 100% of our electricity from renewable energy and truly clean carbon-free sources within 10 years.

Calling all the leaders to lead us out the hole

Asking all deceivers the things I want to know

If we’re so technological

Why’re we still burning oil

‘Cause I got a car you plug into the wall that’s faster than a GTO

We shot for the stars, put rovers on Mars, make planes like UFOs

So why are we borrowin’ money from China to buy oil from the Gulf and destroyin’ the world

Al Gore: Every bit of that has to change...

Now that’s got to change

Now that’s got to change

(Chorus x3)

We’ll stand up

We’ll stand up and take our planet back

You and me

We’ll stand up

We’ll stand up and take our planet back

Talkin’ ‘bout we

Talkin’ ‘bout we

Talkin’ ‘bout

Calling all the citizens

(Al Gore: Citizens...)

Citizens of the land

Ask you your politicians

(Al Gore: Political Leaders...)

All these questions

If we fight another war on terror

Why aren’t we fighting for the environment

We spend a billion dollars on wars in foreign lands

But nothin’ on education

Nikola Tesla turned the Niagara Falls into energy way back when

(Al Gore: Energy...)

And we’re still burning coal

(Al Gore: Coal...)

When you can make electricity with solar and wind

(Al Gore: Solar and wind...)

Now who’s getting played?

You and me

And who’s getting paid?

(Chorus x3)

We’ll stand up

We’ll stand up and take our planet back

You and me

We’ll stand up

We’ll stand up and take our planet back

Talkin’ ‘bout we

Talkin’ ‘bout we, we, we, we

I’m askin’ all the citizens to take action

(Al Gore: Citizens...)

Take action and take back the government

Tell the government to start taxin’ pollution

Makin’ laws ‘cause that’s the solution

It should be against the law to make pollution

So if they make products that do what the other products do

But they didn’t pollute, what are you gonna choose?

Al Gore:

We should tax what we burn, not what we earn.

To those who say the challenge is not politically viable

I suggest they go before the American people and try to defend the status quo

And then bear witness to the people’s appetite for dramatic change

The time is now.
